Carnivorous Fungi Connectikit 


The fungus Arthrobotrys conoides forms loops which remain open until a nematode passes through. The loops then tighten like nooses, holding the prey while the fungus digests it. With this kit, students transfer the fungus to agar plates and observe its growth. They then inoculate the plates with the nematode Rhabditis to trigger the snares. Sufficient materials for a class of 20 individual students or 10 student pairs.

Includes the following:

  • 2 Tube cultures Arthrobotrys
  • 1 Tube culture Rhabditis
  • 3 Bottles cornmeal-dextrose-yeast agar
  • 3 Tubes potato medium, 10 Inoculating loops/needle
  • Bio-Stain
  • 20 Sterile petri plates
  • Instructions

    NOTE: Bacterial and fungal cultures will be sold and shipped to institutions only.
